What is Alsharqiya Gets Creative?

Based in various cities around the Eastern Province, Alsharqiya Gets Creative is Ithra’s annual community engagement and creativity initiative that partners with various entities in the region to offer a wide array of creative activities for the local community. The initiative runs in November of each year.

 

Who is it for?

Individuals from the community

For several weeks in November each year, members of Eastern Province communities enjoy a huge variety of activities designed to inspire their creativity, enable them to engage with other members of the community, hone their talents, share ideas, and explore new ways of thinking. 

 

If you are an individual from the Eastern Province who is interested in developing your skills and boosting your own creativity, stay tuned for our extensive calendar of creative activities!

Entities

Each year, the initiative announces an open call for entities from various fields, including the corporate sector, education sector, restaurant and cafe sector, social sector, sports industry sector, arts sector, commerce sector, and logistics sector. Entities can register for any of the initiative’s domains to present their own creative offering for the Eastern Province community.  

 

Why Alsharqiya Gets Creative?

The Eastern Province has always been a cradle for innovations driven by heritage, civilization and economic development, so it was a clear choice to host a unique inspirational initiative such as #Alsharqiya_Gets_Creative in celebration of the creative heritage of the Eastern Province.

With the engagement of the government, private and nonprofit sectors, the area has become one of the Kingdom’s leading innovation hubs through this annual initiative that stimulates creativity across so many fields through programs, ideas and creative materials in cities across the Eastern Province.
